Improv 21: The Chair the Fact: An Informance with Ben Goldberg
Derk Richardson interviews Berkeley based composer and clarinetist, Ben Goldberg, on October 30, 2006 at the San Francisco Performance Library, as part of the Improv:21 series sponsored by ROVA Arts. Originally from Denver Colorado, Goldberg moved to California to study at the University of California, Santa Cruz where he received his undergraduate degree before also obtaining a Master of Arts in Composition from Mills College. Goldberg was a student of Boston Symphony clarinetist and teacher extraordinaire, Rosario Mazzeo, and has also studied with Steve Lacy and Joe Lovano. He has performed with such groups as the New Klezmer Trio, Tin Hat (formally Tin Hat Trio), Junk Genius, and his own Ben Goldberg Quintet, among others. In this program he talks about how he was influenced by the music of Steve Lacy and Thelonious Monk, as well as his general approach towards composition and group improvisation. Goldberg also performs several of his works and plays excerpts from recordings by Tin Hat and the Ben Goldberg Quintet.
